Quentin Tarantino Isn’t Fazed By ‘Django Unchained’ N-Word Controversy: From the article ” “I think it’s kind of ridiculous, because no one can actually say with a straight face that we use the word more than it was used in 1858 in Mississippi. So since they can’t say that, what they’re basically [saying] is I should lie,” he argued. “I should pretty it up. I should lie, and I don’t lie when it comes to my characters and the stories I tell.” Unless World War II ended with Hitler being shot to death in a movie theater by an elite force of US Commandos we think that Mr. Tarantino is very much mistaken in his assertion that he is somehow true to the history of things. And if he is looking for a spirit of truthfulness he’d be better to purge these films of all anachronism before stooping to imbue “authenticity” by means of this foul and detestable word.

Aw come on, Kip. You’re only slamming q.t. cuz he’s not a right wing nut job like me. The real reason I’ll never watch this film is mister fauxx has been proven by his own word to be too vile for my mind to appreciate his talent any longer. God, I’m so tired of hollyweirdos, I really am. For their involvement in the trashing of this nation’s values they will wallow in their own vomitus and feces in my next big movie. Where’d I put that camera…

it is a word.

ppl strain over this easily (and regularly) swallow the camel of blasphemies against God and Jesus.
When ppl call upon the name of God as an expression and not as a prayer then, imo, that’s calling on God’s name in vain.
Jesus’ name is a regular feature in curses, even amongst those who don’t believe that He is the messiah. And try to get people to quit and they get all offended talking about censorship and how “well, he’s not my god.” Where’s the tolerance towards those who are disgusted that Jesus’ name is dragged through the muck?
OH and then there’s the ppl who seem to think a very sincere prayer for the Almighty One to send the evil straight to hell is mere bad language (or worse, intolerant. *gasp*)

Evidently he’s not fazed by killing all the white people either.

I’m passing on this one but I will continue to watch Pulp Fiction whenever I come across it. Some of the best dialogue ever.

I never saw ‘Pulp Fiction’, but I watched ‘Jackie Brown’ just before this controversy blew up. Treat yourself if you have never seen it. I’m not wild about QT but I’ve never seen a bad make of an Elmore Leonard novel and Jackie Brown might be the best.

Jackie Brown is a good flick. Pulp has its merits. Seen em both. Never again will I pay to watch anything by any of the knobshines that vocalize their disdain for our Constitution and Liberty. I own a few movies with some of these people already. Purchased prior to the rampant anti-American spew they let out since. Hollywood needs a purge again.

I’ve enjoyed several of his movies, Pulp Fiction, Jackie Brown, Reservoir Dogs and the parts of Inglorious Basterds that featured more dialogue than gore. That being said I’ll have no problem skipping this one and would have been better off if I’d been able to have done the same with the Kill Bill series.

On another note . . . IMHO Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels and Snatch are -although perhaps derivative- every bit as good as any of the Tarantino films. I love those movies!

Don’t know how I managed it, but I’ve never seen any of his movies.

I really like the Guy Ritchie movies . . . even the knew Sherlock Holmes that he has done.

I have to agree. The SH movies are totally worthwile. I was reading the series in between the movies and reading the series gave me much more of a like for the movies, even though of course he took GREAT liberties with the original stories.

I agree with you….the Guy Ritchie movies are good. Like the QT movies they are dialogue driven. Jason Statham and Brad Pitt, who played a gypsy bare-knuckle boxer, were great in Snatch.

I regularly avoid going to the movies. There is rarely something that I would want to see, and even more rare is the movie I would pay $10 for the privilege of paying $7 for a hot dog and $8 for a large popcorn and soda.
Netflix and Red Box are the only way to go.
Oh, this movie is on my “Don’t Bother” list.

During the four months I “lived” in Bakersfield, we went to the movies often. It cost a dollar on Tuesday, two dollars the rest of the week. First run movies. Now, with the movies costing a minimum of six dollars, not so much.

Most of Mr. Tarantino’s recent films have become nothing more then regurgitated blood baths, not going to waste my time on them.

Yet hollywierd insists they have nothing to do with mass killings…Here is a perfect example of some shit head director that has one overriding theme, kill lots of people in the bloodiest way possible and get the stupid to pay to see it…..And this controversy? just adding bucks to his pocket because now everyone will want to see what all the commotion is about…He is nothing more than trailer park trash…single wide trailer park trash at that.

Yet these are the same clowns who limit smoking on screen so as not to influence teen smoking. Makes perfect sense.
